Network / Sharing :: Switch External Program To Public Network?
Jul 6, 2013
So i downloaded LogMeIn Hamachi and accidentally put it onto private network, so now everytime the program is working i cannot connect to the internet outside of the hamachi connections. Now i can switch my Wi-fi connection to to public/private by clicking networks, right clicing the one i want to change and clicking turn sharing on/off. But hamachi is not in this list, it is in the network and sharing network centre, were i cannot find how to switch it to public.
When I upgraded from 8 to 8.1 my 8 network got change from public to private under 8.1. I need it to be public and I can find no way to do that. Is it possible?
I tried setting up another network via Network and Sharing Center but after choosing Set up a New Network the window does nothing. It said it might take 90 seconds to for the new devices to appear. Well it has been closer to 90 minutes and still nothing.
Since I've got windows 8 nobody was able to connect to me via hamachi, though it works when two others who have windows 8 connect to each other, so i was looking for what was different, and apparently it doesnt let through any data when it's set to "public network".
The problem here is that usually you change it by clicking on the network symbol, right-clicking your network and turn sharing on or off, but hamachi makes up another network which isn't listed in the primary interface. I've tried many things already and I'm kind of looking for a direct cmd-Command which allows me to change it quickly.
So, basically, I try to change a network-setting from public to private without using the "normal way to do it".
I am trying to change my wireless network profile from public to private, but cannot for the life of me figure out how...
Network Location - Set to Private or Public in Windows 8
^^ Those instructions no longer work on 8.1, and when I go into PC Settings > Network > Tap my network I see no options to enable sharing. I don't have Pro on this particular tablet so I have no access to gpedit.msc nor secpol.msc. What the hell do I have to do to change it? Other than this one ridiculous fault, I think 8.1 is far better than 8 (so far anyway.)
I am trying to share a folder over a local network so I can access it from my Android device. I am using ES filebrowser to access the computer. I have included my user creds when connecting but the only share available is the Public folder on C:, while I have other shares on a different (external USB HDD) drive that give me errors.
The error I get from ES is (Login fails) This may be caused by: WLAN is off; SMB is out of network scope; IP is invalid; Blocked by firewall; SMB service is off.
I have tried connecting from another windows pc using the same credentials and am able to view all the shares.
After creating new shares on local drives it seems the only shares that are unavailable are ones created on the external drive.
Also, trying to connect to this drive on Ubuntu gives: Unable to access location - Failed to mount Windows share: Invalid argument.
How do I change an internet connection to be private instead of public as my computer blocks all connections to other computers on a public network and i am using multiple laptops so i would like to be able to use homegroup properly.
I'm trying to connect to a public open hotspot on my desktop that requires authentication by a web browser. I'm currently getting limited connectivity and I am not prompted that extra information is required (Like I am on this windows 7 laptop)
The windows8 drivers on my usb wireless adapter are all up to date. Troubleshooting says that I have a DNS problem, that the address doesn't exist. I've it with automatic and manual 1st 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 I've also tried disabling ipv6. It's so easy to connect on any other device, first issues I've had with this wi-fi, so It's safe to say it's a issue my end.
I recently bought a new laptop (Lenovo T440s, Win 8.1 Pro w/ update 1, Intel 7260AC). I've tried connecting via wireless in multiple locations, and haven't had any problems except in one location, which is at my office's public access WiFi. I can get onto the network and get internet access on my win7 laptop, and on my Surface 2. With the new Lenovo it appears that I've connected to the wireless network, but have no internet connection. When I initially select the network I get connected, and can open a web page. But then it switches to a "limited" connection and I no longer have access.
Windows defender/firewall is on. No other security things that I know of (I deleted the Norton trial that came with it).
There is a screen that comes up when I log on with any device that asks you to accept that you will not download porn, steal the firstborn child, etc. I've bookmarked the page and been able to push the button to agree, but I still lose the connection shortly after that.
I don't have the internet connection anywhere on the computer (this isn't just a browser issue).
I've tried reinstalling the wireless driver. No luck. I have the most recent version (17), and I've also tried installing the Intel PROset/wireless software as noted in this thread (BT Public Wifi works on Windows 7 but not Windows
8.). But quite honestly I'm not totally sure what to try doing after that is installed. I ran the diagnosis tool, and got a failure on the ping test (No Response: default gateway, DHCP server).
I purchased a new ASUS laptop a couple of days ago and have been trying to use the hotel wifi where I am staying to do the various updates and installs that new computers require. Unfortunately, while I can connect to my tethered cell phone, I cannot connect to the hotel.
I have another computer on hand that has no difficulties connecting to the hotel wifi, so I know the problem is in the new computer somewhere.
Network adapter is a Broadcom 802.11ac
Actions so far:
-Updated Windows 8.1 to current -Attempted to reinstall drivers (uninstalling first) - Drivers are up to date and identical to the ones on manufacturer's site.
some public wi-fi services require a sign on (even if free) -- for example in the UK in most Weatherspoon's pubs there is a free wi-fi service -- _the cloud_ I think it's called (the underscores are part of the name). You register once and then it works in almost every Weatherspoon's pub I've ever been in - if you can log on.
(Weatherspoon's pubs while not the best do have on the whole the CHEAPEST beer in the UK and some actually have some good Guest Ales --rare for a Corporate type of chain whatever people think about that particular organisation -- probably learned more POLISH in one of those places than even on a trip to Poland !!!).
Now - especially on phones sometimes the logon message disappears quickly so you can't get connected to the wi-fi even though the phone says "Connected". -- The same happens on a laptop.
Is there anyway to get the logon screen back again without re-booting or disconnecting from that wi-fi service or re-booting a phone.This only seems to happen on PC's with IE10 and above. (Happens on W7 and Windows 8 laptops) and phones where the logon notification can disappear so fast you miss it.
I was playing a game on my laptop and decided to switch from wifi to ethernet. I plugged in the ethernet and turned off the wifi switch to ensure it switched over, but later when I tried to turn wifi back on, I see the wifi on/off switch is grayed out.
I went to my device manager to check for wifi network adapter driver updates, but everything seemed pretty up to date.
Any recommendations on how to fix this? Or at the least another method of turning the wifi on, like through command prompt or something?
I have just upgraded my laptop(Toshiba Satellite P875). From Windows 8 to 8.1 and now the airplane mode button does not switch the mode on and off??? I can go inside the settings and do it. But the button on the keyboard panel does nothing?
I installed hyper v on my machine which is running Windows 8.1. Then I created a Virtual Switch on my wireless network. After that, it was not working in the VM but the wireless connection in the host was working fine. After that, when I connected to a different wireless network, it did not work. I deleted the bridge, uninstalled hyper v, but it is still not working. I installed hyper v again, but it is still not working. The wireless connection connects to the wireless network after putting the password, but does not give network connectivity to the internet.
I need to get the wireless connection to work again.
My internet provider is BT and they have a couple of public wifi signals that I use when I can't get onto my Home Router, I can use their public wifi on my old Acer windows 7 laptop but I'm having a lot of problems with using it on my new Windows 8.1 Dell Laptop, I can connect to their public wifi and it loads the login page fast but then I can't load any other page. Sometimes it works for a bit but then stops out of nowhere or it will only load some of the page and then just stops loading it. Sometimes it disconnects me and other times it won't let me connect to the network at all. I can use it on my little sister's laptop which runs windows 7 and it's a lot faster than on my new laptop and I never had these problems on my old laptop.
I have a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop which has an Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 adapter built in but I can't use their public Wifi with it so I use an external wireless adapter dongle since I can get faster speeds when connected to my Home Router and it picks three different BT wifi signals but I'm having this issue with all three of them.
My Home Computer (HC) has Windows 8 as the OS. It is wired to an Asus RT-AC66U wireless router. The router is directly wired to an Asus RT-N66U wireless router converted to an access point. My GoFlex HDD is connected directly to the Access Point (RT-N66U).
From my HC, I can open the RT-N66U, and look at the network map, and see the GoFlex listed and the network address, XXX.XXX.X.XXX. If I go to run on the HC, and typeXXX.XXX.X.XXX, it says Windows can't communicate with the device. The Home Computer shows nothing under Network. If I look at "Computer" I can see all the HDD plus GoFlexHome:UPNP and even open the external HDD. But I cannot copy or move files from my computer to the GoFlex external HDD.
I called Seagate Tech Support who said the GoFlex had to show under Network for me to use it.
My wireless laptop(WL) is connected to my network. The GoFlex HDD is under network as is my HC. I can use the GoFlex drive normally and transfer folders or files back and forth. The WL also shows my HC under network, but when I try to access the HC, "Windows cannot communicate with the device"
Both computers are joined to the same workgroup. Under Network and Sharing Center the WLactive network is the name of my wireless network, and is joined under Homegroup. My HC under active network states Network 2, joined under homegroup. The connections are Wireless for the WL and Ethernet for the HC.
How to get my HC on the proper network or settings?
I have two networked PCs. On PC1, I have a program file (.exe) that I want PC2 to be able to access, open and use, but not copy or move from it's location. What would be the best permission settings to adjust on PC1 to protect the file?
Recently I have been installed Windows Eight Pro 64-bit in two of my desktop computers. One pc having motherboard Intel DG41 and the other one is Asus Sabertooth P55i. I have two external Realtek NIC card installed in both of the pcs. When I was using Windows Seven 64-bit, I installed PPPOE as follows:
=> Conrtol Pannel => Network and Sharing Center => Setup a new connection or network => Connect to BROADBAND (PPPOE) [something like that]
But when I am trying to install pppoe on windows eight like the same process, it shows "Unable to install PPPOE" kinds of message and reboot. I thought the NIC card driver was not installed properly so I re-install the NIC card driver and again tried but it crashes and then reboot.
The funny part is, when I plugged the Ethernet cable into my built-in NIC card (the one that is embeded on Motherboard), it doesnt reboot and installed successfully. But I need to use the external NIC card and with that I am unable to connect to PPPOE.
I face the same problem in both of my pc and now I have to use the built-in NIC card. Is there any solution to use the external NIC??
I have an ASUS RT-AC68U router with 9 DBI dual band antennas. I need a program that allows me to copy and paste files to the external hard drives which are connected to the router's USB ports. An example of the application I am seeking is called "Silex Virtual Link", I need one like this, I used to use this 1 on my old D-Link DIR-825 router but it is not working with my new ASUS router and ASUS tech support couldn't solve anything.
I am trying to find a definitive answer to the question of mapping external hard drives. I have 4 external hard drives and would like to know if there is benefit in mapping them or not. Is there benefit in speed/response etc.... I do a lot of video streaming through media centre to xbox 360.
Is there a way to setup network profiles or something so that when I bring my Surface Pro to work and connect to the wireless network there it will use the static ip address I have but when I disconnect and then connect to my home wifi it will go back to DHCP? On my MacBook Pro I can go into the network settings and change the location profile I have setup for networks but I don't see anything like this for Windows 8.
This morning I installed an optional update from Windows Update. It was Ralink Technology WLAN 802.11 wireless LAN card.
Since then, when I try to print to my wireless network printer, the network would disconnect then come back on after a while. The update shows up in Update History as successfully installed but not in the installed updates. System restore is of no support here. The network configuration page shows normal. The web does not appear to be affected. I made a new network connection for the printer but it did not work.
Is there a way to reverse this update or should I uninstall the 802.11 LAN card and let windows re-install anew.
I had Hyper-V and Ubuntu running on Windows 8 no problem. I've since done a fresh install to 8.1, and I can no longer create an External Virtual Switch. The button for "Create Virtual Switch" is grayed out when I select "External". I can create Internal and Private switches, but not External. There's no error or message so I'm having difficulty troubleshooting. All of the tutorials I've seen don't talk about any configuration I would need to do before creating an external switch. I have the default Windows 8.1 firewall and antivirus stuff.
Update: I tried creating the Virtual Switch in PowerShell with the following commands
Code: PS C:WINDOWSsystem32> Get-NetAdapterName InterfaceDescription ifIndex Status MacAddress LinkSpeed Ethernet Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller 3 Up B8-97-5A-13-7C-E6 1 Gbps
I'm not really sure why it couldn't find my physical network adapter, since it shows up with the Get-NetAdapter command.
I am running Windows 8.1 Pro with Hyper-V enabled. When I had Windows 8 I could install a Virtual switch with out any problems, since upgrading I can not install a Virtual Switch with External or Internal settings.
Not sure if this is relevant or not but when I look at the Ethernet properties never "Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch" or "Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol" are ticked. I have tried ticking them but get the error message "Could not add the requested feature. The error is: The data is invalid". I have checked that I am using the latest and correct driver for the card.
I am trying to share a specific folder on my Windows 8 computer with my Windows 7 computer. They are both on the same network connected to the same router. The Windows 8 computer is connected through ethernet, while the Windows 7 computer is connected wirelessly.
Here are my settings on my Windows 8 Computer:
This is the error I get on my Windows 7 computer:
What's up with this? On a related note, is it possible to share this folder with a specific PC, rather than "Everyone" on the network?
